2010 Fraser River Art Festival held at London Heritage Farm on July 11 in sunny Steveston. Mayor Brodie and MLA John Yap made the opening speeches, followed by Chairperson Robert Berkhout of London Heritage Farm to officially open the event, also in attendance was Councilor Bill McNulty. People were entertained prior to the opening by Piper Jim Wishlove. Local artists took great pride in showing off their work. Many visitors to the farm wandered around admiring the artists work.
London Heritage Farm set up a tent where visitors could purchase coffee, tea, scones and cookies. Volunteers helped with the refreshments. One thing that stands out were the tables set up by London Farm for guests to eat off. All the tables were made from the recycled wood from the newly renovated porch to the house. Nothing goes to waste at the farm if at all possible.
